Melissa and I hosted a New Year's Eve party last night and had some great friends pop by. We set this up in my studio and grabbed group shots with everyone that visited. Melissa had several wardrobe changes as the night went on.
These three rascals stole the show early in the evening.
People came and left in small waves. This was the first group shot. Mark and Laura brought their kiddies, and their friend Jaclyn, Matt and Janet stayed the night with George, and Jenne and Johnny came and brought the best damn homemade pickles. We all had full bellies before Mark and Laura had to leave to put the kids to bed. Note Melissa's new outfit.
Melissa's folks made it out, as did Dillon, Burton, and Roger before heading to another party.
Uncle Bill and Aunt Kathy made it all the way from Ontario, Aunt Romana and Jim, and Melanie and Nick helped ring in 2017, too.
Melissa and I are blessed to have amazing friends in our lives, like these two. Matt and Janet packed up G and spent the night with us. Hopefully it was the first time of many.
Here we are at about 3am after cleaned up after the party - I helped as best I could but ended up breaking the garbage can. Melissa's final and some would say best outfit of the evening.
Something was missing in 2016 for me, and I think it was the lack of shooting/posting to the blog. I'm going to post daily again for all three of you to view my images and read my short ramblings. I'm looking forward to 2017. There are many projects I have planned - from shooting to woodworking to snowshoeing to increasing my adventure intake and getting shit done.
